Year 3 - tour eiffel


We are the Tour Eiffel class!

Whether you're lucky enough to have visited Paris or have only ever dreamed of going there, chances are you know of the French capital's most beloved landmark, The Eiffel Tower.

The Eiffel Tower, La Tour Eiffel in French, was the main exhibit of the Paris Exposition of 1889. It was constructed to commemorate the centennial of the French Revolution and to demonstrate France's industrial prowess to the world. 

Although, at the beginning it was meant to be a temporary structure, it proved to be extremely popular and soon became a symbol for Paris. 


Our IPC topic for this half term will be Paintings, Pictures and Photographs. This unit gives the children a chance to learn about visual representation. They will find out about how artists use different materials and techniques for their work, how symbols are used to represent sounds, how light, dark and shadows can be created, how symbols are used on maps and plans, how visual images are used to help influence out thinking, about the materials and techniques used in the past, about natural landscapes across the world and the issues that threaten them.
